Face the Fear

Wed, 05/08/2013 - 12:07 -- Ktlcool

What I wanted was a life normal to every other
I fell victim to the mirror, the rest just makes me shutter
I quit making friends, and made my body crumble
Every meal was a war, magazines made me stumble
I gradually got better, but my mind is still in pain
I went on to college thinking everything would be okay
I had no money to pay for school and because of that I hid away
I made it one semester and had to go home because I couldn't pay
Now I'm left to think about how to get back and it hurts everyday
I've become jealous of my friends and their worry-free days
I want an extraordinary life, I wouldn't have it another way
Just need to get back on my feet and face the fear TODAY
